    Too bad Pete Rock didn't create the sample, he USED someone elses too. So it makes no sense.

    lol you didn't understand what happened did you? Lupe's producer covered TROY with instruments, didn't use the same samples that lay on that record.

    Pete Rock needs to relax. the entire Paid in Full album has been sampled to death, yet I don't hear Eric B. & Rakim bitching about it

    Pete Rock sounds like he has his head up his ass. The dude's career is based on making beats from samples of other people's songs.

    Just as a reminder.... Wu-Latino has never worked with the Wu-Tang Clan.

    pete rock should chill.

    this beat is derivative, but it might introduce youngsters to a classic. also, lupe is flowing over it. the only problem is this could never be as good as the original. that's my main complaint with it.

    but artists complainign on twitter about other artists is the wackest part of the game right now

    Lupe is sounding better than he has in a very long time, fits this type of production a lot better than what he's been spitting over the last couple of years..

    That said - the beat is wack..

    FROM HIPHOPDX:

    Lupe Fiasco says his team went through the proper channels for approval.

    After Lupe Fiasco released his new single "Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free)" last night, Pete Rock went on a Twitter tirade about how he does not approve of his sampling "T.R.O.Y. (They Reminisce Over You)." But according to the Chicago, Illinois rapper, it was a "shock" to him that the veteran producer took offense to the remake.

    During an interview today with WGCI's The Morning Riot (via FSD), Lu explained that his team reached out to Rock to get his blessing. "That was a little unexpected, seeing as we already reached out to him to get his blessing and all that. We went and did it," he said. "Especially because of what it means to him and what it represnets to him and how deep, how personal the record is for him. At the same time, too, with Heavy D passing and all that stuff, we tried to be as sensitive as possible with it and make sure that we represent it correctly. But there are so many remakes of ‘T.R.O.Y.’ out there. That's what was surprising."

    Lupe said he isn't going to get involved in the situation, since it was his manager Chill's idea to use sample "T.R.O.Y." "Nah. The friends and family is dealing with that. They’re the ones who put that together, so I’m kind of like a third party in it. But the people who initially reached out to him from my camp to his camp, I guess they was on the phone last night trying to figure out what was going on. It was a shock to me and it’s best for me to fall back."
